Ski Bags made from Recycled Billboard Vinyl

U.S. highway billboard vinyl is a thin, durable, and recyclable material. A new brand, Epicstoke, has built ski bags made of the material, which might otherwise end up in a landfill.

The bags are made in the USA in Minnesota. Each has “character” via the inked graphics and text that remain from the material’s old days as an advertising sign.

A limited run of just 20 of the ski bags are available now on the brand’s Indiegogo site (scroll down on page).

The 191cm double-size ski bag fits one or two pair. It has straps and a waterproof YKK zipper. The company touts it will “stunningly stand out” in any airport baggage area.

Epicstoke will release its ski bags, wallets, a backpack, and more later this year. You can see the company’s Kickstarter effort (they were fully funded!) or the company website for the full scoop.
